Blue Ice gear is here again!

If you live in North America and have been looking, I have a limited stock of Blue Ice, Octopus packs, the Chouca lwt mountaineering harness and a few dozen of the Boa ice tool leashes now in stock and ready to ship.  Sorry, the Warthogs are sold out again!

details here:

As a testimonial in support of this gear, I purchased one of Dane's first batch of Boa leashes and I absolutely recommend it to anyone who owns (or thinks they might own) a leashless tool, especially one without a clip-in point. It's exactly what you want in an umbilical setup: simple design that is also totally effective. No worries about your attaching biners being lower strength than the rest of the rig or accidentally unclipping as they've been known to do: a simple girth hitch attaches this to your tools (and it's low-profile enough that you won't really notice it affecting the grip at all).

Order in... I can already speak well of the CT hammers, but I can't wait to see what the Blue Ice stuff looks like!

Thanks Dane.

I just picked up one of the Warthog packs and absolutely love it so far. Haven't been able to test it on the mountain as Im waiting for snow! But as soon as winter arrives Ill give it a full review.
